Abstract

An analytical investigation of the propagation of power through a three-layer liquid crystal fiber with the outermost cladding made of radially anisotropic liquid crystal is presented. Using Maxwell's equations power characteristics for two lower-order TE and TM modes are presented for the liquid crystal section (of the fiber) as well as the fiber core. It is found that relatively high amount of power propagates through the liquid crystal clad, which is attributed to the radial anisotropy of the material. Also, the distribution of power is found to be fairly uniform over the considerable range of propagation constants. These features indicate the possible use of such fibers in the fabrication of different coupling devices.
